As I started scrolling through the photos of Danny Manning’s house that’s for sale in Winston Salem, NC, I saw a pretty typical athlete real estate listing. It has a nice open floor plan that drives the ladies nuts, a beautiful kitchen, and the normal sitting rooms that are never used. Then I made it to the real action: the patio pool area!
BINGO! Now we have ourselves a post. Danny Manning is rolling with one of the most impressive patio/pool combos you’re going to see, especially if you want to do some nude sunbathing without having to worry about the neighbors. Danny’s pool area is a literal fort with zero second-story houses with the ability to see inside the party zone.
Hate the sight of neighbors? Hate grass? Danny Manning has your dream house. It’s all yours for $1,450,000.

Dee gets it. She knows that pool area is about as great as it gets if privacy is the goal. In fact, I’d love to build a wall like this around my yard on two sides to block out the idiots who I have to deal with. Danny just put a thought into my head with this one. Build it so high that the idiots can’t see the rager going on in the saltwater pool.
Only in my courtyard pool dream, I have a five-foot by five-foot square of grass to stick my feet in. Not a ton of grass, just enough to get the feel when the flops are off.
• 6 miles to the nearest Starbucks
• 5.9 miles to Whole Foods
• 6.8 miles to the Wake Forest basketball arena where Danny used to work
• 4.6 miles to the nearest country club
• 6 miles to Total Wine & More
Mortgage: $6,800 or so, but keep in mind your landscaping costs are going to be dirt cheap because there’s very little yard and that massive wall around the place is maintenance-free.
